More Alberta Express Entry applicants are one step closer to permanent residence, following the draw for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) on June 17.

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) issued 187 invitations to candidates who may be eligible through the Alberta Express Entry stream. Applicants invited to the Express Entry group required a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) requirement of at least 303 points.

Express Entry is the system that handles applications from three federal immigration streams: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.

Applicants are then ranked according to the CRS, which assigns points for human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and proficiency in the English or French language.

The highest-rated applicants then receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada (ITA) through regular Express Entry draws.

AINP’s “enhanced” stream – AINP Express Entry Stream

Express Entry applicants have the option of being invited to submit a provincial nomination request from Alberta and other provinces with PNPs aligned with the Express Entry.

A provincial nomination awards candidates an additional 600 CRS points for their overall score, which propels them to the top of the group for selection in a subsequent Express Entry draw.

The coronavirus has affected AINP operations. Currently, only Alberta applicants are invited for nomination. Applicants must have work experience in an eligible profession that supports the province’s economic development and diversification priorities.

The AINP does not provide a list of eligible occupations, but rather a list of occupations they will not consider. Ineligible occupations include those in the high-wage and low-wage occupations of the Province of Alberta and the list of ineligible occupations in the Alberta Opportunity Stream.

With special measures in place against coronaviruses, the AINP now requires that applicants meet the following criteria to receive a nomination:

  • Be currently working in Alberta, even if they are working from home;
  • Have a work permit authorizing them to work in their current job;
  • Have a job that is full-time, paid, meet the provincial minimum wage, exceeded Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) requirements, and they must work in an eligible occupation.

Applicants who worked full time before the coronavirus pandemic and those who work in a regulated profession who cannot meet permit requirements will have their application pending for 60 calendar days.

If applicants do not have a recent employment history in the province, their applications will not be processed until further notice.

So far this year, Alberta has sent 1,785 invitations to Express Entry applicants. In 2019, the Albert Express Entry Stream issued 6,884 invitations. Alberta’s provincial allocations for 2020 have not yet been released.
